Empathetic Innovation

Staffing and recruitment firms who are achieving the fastest growth in margin percentage and dollars are taking their cues from some of the best at innovation: Starbucks, Airbnb, Warby Parker, Patagonia, Kickstarter, and Apple. Instead of bombarding tons of prospects with mundane sales and marketing pitches, hoping to get them to care about their offerings, they are figuring out what matters most to these buyers, then delighting them, one person at a time. This approach,…

Engineer Recruiting Became Even More Difficult in 2014

On the back of a stellar jobs report unveiled last Friday, I was asked by a reporter for Hearst Publications to take a look at our data for engineering job advertisements in the final quarter of 2014 and to compare them to the final quarter of 2013.

Across the board, every engineering discipline saw a marked increase in the number of jobs advertised on any given day in the final quarter of 2014 vs 2013.  What makes this particularly insightful for this year's recruiting - the…

The Tesla Approach to Staffing and Recruiting

Car fanatic or not, there is a lot to like about a Teslaand how this electric vehicle is a model for better business. Acceleration from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds, which the Model S can now achieve, is the kind of rapid velocity staffing and recruitment customers can experience when firms shift from reactive to active recruiting. Most buyers need that talented person yesterday, so speeding that…

Leadership in Healthcare Recruiting - Seeking Individual Feedback on Leadership Behaviors (Quick Survey Below)

As a recruiter and graduate student, I had a number of questions on the state of recruiting (filling jobs) within the Healthcare industry.

Shut Up and Sell

In just two minutes the salesperson had gotten the client to say “yes” to giving his firm a shot at filling their needs. Had he stopped there, all would have been right and good in his world. Unfortunately, he continued to talk, extolling the features and benefits of the staffing services provided by his company. The “yes” turned into a “no” after the customer recanted, deciding to take time to think over his decision. Now that customer is buying from another firm, one I suspect whose…

The Dream

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Having a dream is a powerful thing. So proved Dr. King in the life he lived and in the words he shared as an American civil rights activist. Dreams, based upon deep convictions and core beliefs, can be the basis of tremendous good in both personal and professional…

The Rush to Judgement

How easy it is to apply previous experience to current circumstances. Such was the case when I emailed colleagues last week about a trip to New York I was on as a chaperone for my son’s thespian troupe. I received responses like:

  • “Ugh, teenagers. Good luck.”
  • “How’d you get roped into that?”
  • “Better you than me!”

This trip was one of…

Professional Sportsmanship

Watching the Florida State football team lose to Oregon on New Year’s Day was not shocking nor disappointing, given the impressive performance of the Ducks. What was disheartening was the poor sportsmanship displayed by both teams; many of the Seminoles headed to the locker room instead of shaking hands with the victors, and several Oregon team members openly mocked Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the accusation of sexual assault that has followed him for the past…

The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Employment Brand

According to Wikipedia, a brand is the “name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller’s product as distinct from those of other sellers.”  In Recruiting, your product is your company, your culture, and your candidate’s experience.  You need to pique interest in the marketplace and make…
